Ethical Development Assignment
Assume the role of the new director of a professional organization, a mental health clinic, or a private nonprofit research institution or a university program. Most of the staff/faculty have been part of the organization for years, and the atmosphere is very collegial. You, however, have heard, that shortcuts are being taken and potential ethical violations are not being addressed by colleagues. Now, you are preparing
for your first meeting with the entire staff. Your goal is to emphasize the need for ethical decision making and the importance of placing the clients’ or students’ needs and rights above those of the staff. Additionally, your PowerPoint presentation should emphasize the APA Ethics Code and the standards for resolving ethical violations. In your speaker notes, include examples of hypothetical violations. You must utilize and cite the Ethical Standards that you believe may be the subject of the violation.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists.
Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide) Notes Length: 200-350 words for each slide.
